(whistles and chuckles) it's an approximation at best, but i, uh, analyzed roscoe's secret recipe. i think it's pretty good. don: waffles for dinner? waffles. what's the deal with the waffles, man? i think it's charlie's way of saying that your family is whoever you want to eat waffles with. larry: that's a worthy sentiment. one that's even better with syrup. don: gotta have some bacon. you made some bacon, right? somebody tell me something about chicken? where's the chicken?

who was the last franchise quarterback? >> you have to go way back into the archives. everybody knew the number two position was key to this year's draft. the rams had it. many teams wanted it in order for the redskins to leap up to get it, they had to make a bold move. they made one. today, general manager, bruce allen, confirming what we already knew. washington mortgaged a lot to get that number two pick. and one would assume they are going to use it to obtain the services of that guy right there. robert griffin iii. heisman trophy winner. tonight, during a charity event downtown, allen and other former redskins chiming in on the move. why did they do it? did they give up too much? all of those subjects were on the table. >> i want to remind everyone we have the second pick of the draft and clearly we fell in love with two players and we believe one of those players will be a great risk. we understand it was a heavy
price. when you bought your home, you want to pay less, too, but you like your home once you live in it. so we're very comfortable. >> the redskins did not wait and just decide what they are going to do later. they made a commitment. they made a bold move and i think at the end of the day, rg2, 3, 4, 5, whoever he is. no, rg3 is the guy. >> it's been tough. i feel for our fans and in many ways, that we haven't been successful. and we are trying to get it right and i think we made a big step. >> strong words by general manager, bruce allen. we are just getting started. coming up in sports, i'm joined by grant paulson. we're going to discuss, was the price tag too steep in and is peyton manning still an option here in d.c.? all that and the caps and the wizards and d.c. united coming up in sports. i like that.
we're trying to get it right. high risk, high reward. here's what the fans are saying tonight about the team's move to acquire rg3. ken hit the streets to gauge the pulse in the city. >> reporter: there's a new loud noise being heard on washington's bustling streets and it sounds like this. >> rg3. rg3. rg3. >> we need him bad. we need a quarterback. >> no doubt about it. everywhere you look, washington is buzzing with the almost locked in chance of heisman trophy winner, robert griffin iii coming to the redskins. >> we have not had a great quarterback like that as long as i can remember. this guy is disciplined, intelligent, physical, articulate, he's the whole package. >> it's been more than a decade since the redskins had anything to brag about. they hope rg3 will be the break they and the team so desperately need.
from ben's chili bowl to the neighborhood sports bar and barber shop, everyone is just -- >> happy that he is coming to town. >> clearly there is no shortage of excitement in washington over the prospects of rg3 coming to town. you'll also find those who are skeptical about the possibility. >> if this doesn't work out, the next few years are going to be tougher. >> it's not going to be the magic pill. >> most of the skeptics are critical of what the redskins traded. >> to give three years straight first round picks and a second in this one, i think it might have been too much. >> despite those sentiments, there's no denying washington has just been pumped with a new kind of energy that has been missing here for years. >> rg3, baby. the heisman trophy is coming to town. >> at a news conference earlier today, redskins general manager would not specify by name who the team is interested in. he would only say right now
